Welcome to our classes

Welcome to our online Monkey Music sessions for babies, toddlers and young children. As a music graduate and professional singer I feel passionate about continuing our work in developing social, linguistic and musical skills through [email protected] - bringing music and fun into your home during this very strange time. Take care. You've got this! Elen xx

Monkey Music Amersham, Beaconsfield and the Chalfonts has been running for 12 years and we are wonderfully supported by our lovely families. We are three times HOOP Buckinghamshire winners 2019 for Best for Babies; Best for Toddlers AND Best Music, Drama and Dance class – as voted by our parents and carers. You couldn’t ask for more!

I have a degree in Welsh and Music and then spent 3 postgraduate years at the Royal Northern College of Music before performing for 10 years in the West End (The Phantom of the Opera), Jerry Springer the Opera and The Sound of Music at the London Palladium – playing the role of Sister Sophia for the whole two and a half year run!  Then Monkey Music came into my life!

Monkey Music is second to none – the curriculum is exceptional and varied, supporting all aspects of development – physical, linguistic, social and musical. After all these years I still love all the songs and it is a privilege to see the growth in confidence and little ones doing more and more.

With four separate classes and the learning tailored to the specific needs of that age-group, parents, nannies and carers enjoy the classes too, working with their children in an environment of smiles. We use only high quality resources - our musical instruments are instruments, rather than toys. They are robust and designed to stimulate and support the learning for each child. We love seeing babies and little ones enjoying music - a child is never too young to enjoy the steady beat. The 3-4 year olds also try out instruments of the orchestra!

Our little ones are so busy having fun that they don't even relaise they are learning!  Even the tiny little babies come to know that lovely things happen at Monkey Music.  One dad of a little boy in our Rock'n'Roll class (for babies from 12 weeks) said to me, "My little boy knows three car parks - the nursery - where he cries; the gym where he grizzles and Monkey Music - where he claps!"

"It's the one class we can't miss! It's helped bring my shy little boy out of his shell greatly. I can't recommend the classes highly enough. It's the best money I've spent as Tom (22 months) loves it so much

Monkey Music Mum

I just wanted to say thank you again for these classes. We’ve just enjoyed a magical half hour thanks to you and your amazing talent and creativity!”

Monkey Music Mum

We did it twice and she was so happy! She seems to love seeing your face too and thinks you're talking directly to her so answers all your questions. Looking forward to the next one!

Monkey Music Mum

"Thank you so much! That was a particularly brilliant class-both children adored it. My eldest was supposed to be doing some school work and as soon as she heard your “helloooo” she came dashing in to join us!"

Monkey Music Mum

"Far and away the best class we have done. Over the past two years I've seen the girls develop listening skills, musical rhythm and most importantly have a wonderful time in classes and then at home"

Monkey Music Mum

"We still love it as much as ever. We tried a few different classes from around four months of age and Monkey Music is the only one we're still doing. Highly recommended"

Monkey Music Grandparent

Monkey Music Mum

The Monkey Team

Elen Môn Wayne

I'm Elen and I'm the franchise owner of Monkey Music Amersham, Beaconsfield and the Chalfonts. I have been teaching the Monkey Music curriculum for 12 years and I love it! Introducing babies and children to music is so important and I love seeing their growth and development.

 

Miranda Dawe

I first taught Monkey Music here locally in 2017. I'm now also a Monkey Music mum and I'm now back with the teaching team to offer ZOOM classes for our Autumn term!  I have a degree in Acting and an MA in Musical Theatre and I'm thrilled to be back!  

Nicky Carnaby

I was a Monkey Music mum and now I/m a Monkey Music teacher! I absolutley love Monkey Music and how it helps with every aspect of a child's development.  As a mum it was one of the highlights of my week! I love singing and can't wait to meet you and your little one!

What do the classes involve? Monkey Music is an interactive award winning musical curriculum. Classes are small and tailor-made for babies and young children who are grouped according to their age. Each child is accompanied by their carer. Little monkeys sing, dance and play musical instruments. Big monkeys join in the fun too!
Can babies relate to music at such a young age? The ear is the first organ to develop fully in the womb. From five months, an unborn baby can hear the world around them. Early exposure to music encourages babies to develop their musical ear which supports all aspects of early learning and development. Just as language skills are developed early in life, so is musical talent. Regardless of the level of music aptitude with which children are born, they must have formal and informal experiences in music to maintain that level of potential.
Are the classes different for each age group? Yes. Our curriculum is structured and progressive. Rock’n'Roll: from 3 months Heigh-Ho: from 12 months Jiggety-Jig: 2 + 3 year olds Ding-Dong: 3 + 4 year olds
Are all the teachers musically trained? All Monkey music teachers are specifically trained on delivering the Monkey Music curriculum. Many of them are professional musicians and teachers.
How long is a class? Half an hour. Each 30 minute class is a significant step in our progressive curricula. Classes are carefully planned to maximise the attention span of a very young child so that they learn from sharing a rewarding, enjoyable and worthwhile experience.
At what age can my child start Monkey Music? From 3 months old.
Can I try a class before I sign up to a course? Yes. You and your child are invited along for a free complimentary class when making an initial booking enquiry.
How much does a class cost? Please ask at your local Monkey Music Office.
Do I have to pay a term in advance? Yes. After your first complimentary class you reserve your place and are invoiced pro rata for the remaining classes in the term. Families who attend our classes will often bond with their teacher and other members of their group. In order to reserve places so that everyone can be together we facilitate a termly booking system. This also encourages our families to attend regularly so that everyone learns new skills at the same pace.
How many children are in a class? Maximum 15
Do classes just run during term time? Regular classes run during term time. Many areas also run seasonal Holiday Workshops during school holidays.
What happens at a Monkey Music Birthday Party? See More Fun on the main website.
How do I become a Monkey Music franchisee? For more details, please click here
Where can I buy Monkey Music merchandise? Please click here.
Why pay a membership fee? When enrolling in Monkey Music for the first time, a child becomes a member of the Little Monkey Club. New members receive a Welcome Pack, including a Monkey Music T-shirt and beautiful sticker pack as well as access to our online club which supports the child in their learning experience at Monkey Music. The membership fee is payable when registering each child in regular weekly classes at Monkey Music and we offer a discount to siblings who join at any stage. Siblings receive their own welcome pack and T-shirt to wear to class. Ask your local classes for more details.
Is it OK for me to take photos or video in class? No, we politely request that you refrain from taking photos or videos at class.
Can I opt out of the membership fee? No, our online club is designed to support the learning experience of children at our regular classes.
Can I bring a sibling? Yes! We offer discounts for siblings, ask your local classes for more details.
Do I have to sing along? We love it when our customers join in and your children benefit from hearing the sound of a familiar voice, no matter how good or bad!
Do I have to be musical? No! Our teachers will make you feel welcome whatever your musical ability.
Why don’t you offer drop-in classes? We value musical education as a fundamental part of early development, and as such our regular weekly classes are progressive to maximise the learning potential of each child.
Can I bring my newborn too? Yes! Newborn babies are welcome in our classes, please speak to your local classes for more information.
What do I need to bring with me? Everything you need to enjoy our classes is provided by the teacher.
What if I can’t make my usual class? You are welcome to catch up with any classes that you miss. Speak to your local classes to book a catch up class.
What makes Monkey Music classes so special? Monkey Music classes are considered a leading light in pre-school education. Come along for a free class to see for yourself what make Monkey Music classes the highlight of the week for so many families across the UK!
Why is Monkey Music more expensive than the other music groups around? Monkey Music has been established for over 25 years and is proud to have a rich musical heritage. We offer a unique and progressive learning experience for your child, which is supported by over 500 original songs and musical activities. Our talented teachers are carefully chosen and trained to offer the highest standard of pre-school music education.
Why are Monkey Music classes 30 minutes long? Our classes have been honed and developed over 25 years and are designed to fully captivate babies and young children for the duration. The very interactive nature of every class means that our little monkeys need to rest again after 30 minutes of magical music making!
What do you expect of the children, do they have to sit down the whole time? Each class is carefully structured and formatted so that every child and carer is encouraged to join in with the fun. Classes are paced according to each age group with the opportunity for little ones to be up on their feet during ‘Time to Move’ and sitting with their carers during ‘Time to Play’ and ‘Time to Sleep’. Most children quickly learn what is happening next and Monkey helps them with friendly encouragement!
Do you offer ‘mixed age’ classes? Because of the progressive nature of our curricula which is age specific, we do not offer regular weekly mixed classes. However, during the holidays, many of our teachers offer mixed age holiday workshops.
